Have the chance of a nice .223 set up at a good price but it has a really heavy target barrel.
Just wondered about the possibilities of getting the barrel machined down and shortened to a varmint type size. The question is: would I be setting up stresses resulting in inaccuracy, my belief is a new barrel is machined to size after being screw cut so why not an older barrel.
The other option is a new barrel and as it is a Savage they are interchangeable.
not sure who the dealer is yet to approach about a new barrel.
Ideas anyone ????????
